I wanted to take this picture from the back, Love how the leaves fold in, You always see the beauty from the front. I was having trouble with the sharpening and didn't want to over saturate the reds. All C&C welcome.

Kyle, When I first saw this I was going to suggest taking some canvas off the right and adding canvas to the left-but now I see that you are using the back as the front. Very clever and different! Might take a slice off the top. I think the BG compliments your subject well. I think this is cool!!

Hey Kyle, I like the different like and good details and BG. I think it would work better if the have flower was positioned more in the center rather then offset to the left.

Hi Kyle Marie,
I'm not a fan of this angle.....not sure why? I like the concept but do wonder if exploring the surves of the back more...possibly from the side?....the more central comp may help and you did a great job with the exposure end bG....just not lovin' the angle.

First thing I will say is that you seemed to accomplish what you set out to do. That is important. And to that end, you image is successful.

Personally, I am having a hard time getting past the front as the front even though the perspective is from the back. SO I keep wanting to see the things shifted right. I also think a much tighter crop might help here - taking some off the top and the right. Just a thought.
